The United States Department of Agriculture today released an updated version of its online course for dog breeders. This course provides the latest information on the federal Animal Welfare Act regulations and licensing requirements.
The program includes information on the pre-licensing process, and guidelines and suggestions to help breeders be in compliance.
The course can be viewed online here.
The AKC continues to work with APHIS and federal lawmakers to help ensure the Animal Welfare Act is reasonable and fair for responsible dog breeders. For more information on the Animal Welfare Act and whether it impacts you, read AKC’s handout on the current regulations.
